Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Pot etiquette at shows.

One of the great things about going to Grateful Dead shows and all the related bands is the community vibe and the culture of sharing..
For example, I can't tell you how many times over the years I have been handed joints by complete strangers.
Usually whenIi go to a show, if we have pot, we light up a joint, smoke half of it and then pass it to a neighbor and tell them to pass it down the line.
Attending Furthur last night, I was pleased to see that this atmosphere still exists at shows, even here in Utah.

Any time I've forgotten to bring goodies there's always more than enough people that are happy to help out :-)

And yes I don't think I've ever been to a live jam band show without being passed something. Only in this wonderful tightly-knit community.

How was Furthur last night btw? I think they've been playing at their best this summer and fall.

this thread reminded me of something.

i went to the 2008 phil-a-thon in nyc at the nokia theater. after the last show let out, there were 2 kind gentlemen at the exit outside, handing EVERY person who walked out a full nitrous balloon.

they had 2 full tanks and were filling up balloons as fast as they could. this is right in the middle of manhattan, and there were deadheads all over the streets afterwards with balloons. already being in an altered state, it was quite a surreal sight to behold.

amazingly there were no cops in sight this night. i left shortly after i received my balloon, so i don't know if these guys got busted eventually. every show i've been to since at the nokia though, it seems there's a whole police squad outside after the shows.


unfortunately security has increased so much at most venues these past years, moments like that will become almost non-existent soon.

i wonder when the last time laced booze was freely distributed at a show.

the only way forv them to have gotten in trouble was if they were selling it with no vendor licence

I had a great time... the show itself was good, not great.
